Boasting 429 new doctors, Nicaragua will have the second highest number of non-Cuban students receiving Doctor of Medicine degrees this month from Cuban medical schools, surpassed only by Bolivia in the number of foreign graduates. Cuba’s commitment to health care for the world’s poor is shown by the fact that 5,694 foreigners will graduate this month after receiving free medical education. Students from 59 countries will graduate. The new doctors will join government health programmes that have already benefitted hundreds of thousands of Nicaraguans with free health care.
